I paid some bloke to fit a USB port to my PC (it's v old) - he gave me a CD-ROM with the drivers on it that he downloaded from the internet.

I've plugged in the scanner, put the CD-R in the drive and started the "install hardware" wizard. It keeps telling me there is no drivers detected - so, what do I do? Is there a site where I can get the drivers from? how do I know which to use?

Go to the website of the company that make the scanner. You should be able to download the drivers there.

You looking for USB drivers or scanner drivers?

You might want to also check the Windows Update sight. They do occasionally have updates available for certain hardware there as well.
